Fall Hoodie

I started this a few weeks back and finished it a couple of weeks ago.  The picture isnt' the best and it doesn't let you see the true colors.  It is brightly colored with shades of purples, oranges and reds.  I was inspired to make this for Grandbaby by my friend GibKnitty.  It was quick and fun to make.  I did make a few adjustments to the original pattern.  I ribbed the ends of the sleeves because it makes it easier to roll the sleeves up and keep them up.  Sometimes sleeves are a little long for Grandbaby.  I also didn't garter stitch the hood as the pattern called for.  I like the way the hood looks with the garter stitch border, it flows with the sweater.  Any way, I like it and will definitely knit this again. 

I think I need to start another one for a gift soon.  That means I get to go pick out yarn - yippee!!


  1. it looks so great! i like your idea about the ribbing on the cuffs. i am currently making a little baby kimono sweater that i will share on my blog soon when it is done.
